Court orders authorities to stop opposition campaign in Moscow
MOSCOW, May 15 - RAPSI. The Moscow Basmanny District Court has ordered the Central Administrative District and the police to stop the opposition campaign on Chistoprudny Boulevard in downtown Moscow and to clean up the site.
The court has ruled that the opposition flashmobs on the boulevard have damaged the greenery and the lawns, which now need to be restored.
"The Interior Department must take measures to stop the disturbance on Chistoprudny Boulevard and the prefecture must restore the lawns and the flowerbeds," Judge Olga Solopova said.
The lawsuit was filed by 12 Moscow residents who were displeased with the disturbances in their district as a result of the campaign.
They asked the authorities to stop the opposition "walks" and to make the necessary repairs.
